Paid around $3 for a single at the Party Source...
Pours a clear and amber, medium head, good retention, minimal lacing. Excellent sweet malt smell, mild hops, and a little country wheat; real pleasant.
The taste takes off from the smell, all three elements carryover and its incredibly smooth, a larger head to smooth out the taste would be ideal, but it isn't perfect only because of this. The perfect session beer at 8.0% abv... does rival with Aventinus for sytle, but they differ quite a bit.
Final Thought: Excellent brew, might be Great Lakes best offering; worth saving for a great occasion.

Looks like the brownish sludge on the side of a Cleveland road after a snowplow.. a 1.5" 'stadium mustard' head(to boot)..poured in the cellar at the brewery for mantrip. Consensus among the guys as our fave current seasonal of the bunch(also had ipl, milkstout, american ale, erie monster, Wright pils.. as well their mainstays).
Looks ominous. Smell of banana, lemon, and sourdough bread.
Taste is lots of banana too with a bang of sour yeast esters... . Balanced though. A slight sweetness n the finish too. Mint alcohol late. Belies its 8% though.. For sure. Tastes like A 6.5-7% brew. Extremely pleased.
Airy. Frothy. Heat, but not 'boozy'.. At least for 8.0. Tred lightly, but it will be difficult.
This is a great beer from a great brewery.
